    Dell Inspiron 11.6 2 in 1 with i3 Processor. SSD?


    I bought a Dell Inspiron i3148-6840sLV 11.6-Inch 2 in 1 Convertible Touchscreen Laptop (Intel Core
    i3 Processor, 4GB RAM) on a whim yesterday from Costco. I have 90 days to use it and return it. I paid $399.99. So far I rather like it.

    This is not my main computer but I would use it as my main laptop because of portability, etc. I am wondering if an upgrade to a SSD would be worthwhile and if so, what kind, etc.

    At this price, plus with the addition of the SSD, is there something a lot better I should consider or it that too subjective?

    Any input welcome.

    Thank you.

    What I found is that your unit probably has a 500GB HDD but an equivalent-sized SSD may cost close to the same amount. The only time I've seen a change from HDD to SSD it worked best by doing a clean install on the SSD from the Factory Restore discs made while still running the HDD.

    250 gb Samsung SSD is about $108.00 at NewEgg. Have a guy who will install it for $50.00. Seems worth it.

    Input appreciated.

    Thank you

    Can't hurt to try. I have a Crucial 120GB SSD running Linux Mint 17.1 on a 5-year-old HP Pavilion g6 resurrected from trash, does quite well.
